“The genuine beauty of the Cyclades islands…”
Schinoussa is a small, virgin island, right in the heart of the Cyclades islands. Located southwest of Naxos, it belongs to the Small Cyclades complex (together with Koufonisi, Donousa, Iraklia and other islets).
The non-touristic development of the island, the lack of buses, taxis and rental cars, the pristine natural landscape with palm trees, white sandy beaches and turquoise crystal clear waters make it an ideal destination for those travelers seeking to relax and enjoy their holidays in absolute peace and privacy. There is no traffic, very few people on the island, a slow pace of life and a relatively green landscape. Can you think of anything better in order to disconnect and unwind from everyday’s stress?
Schinoussa is also a favorite destination and a popular mooring spot for sailing enthusiasts. Being in a close distance from the rest of the Cyclades islands, Schinoussa is an ideal base for daily sailing trips to Paros, Naxos, Koufonisi, Donousa, Amorgos or Ios.
Its name probably derives from the bushy plant lentisk (Schino in Greek) that flourishes on the island. There is, however, another version telling that the island took its name after the Venetian nobleman Schinoza. There are only 3 villages in the island, Chora, Messaria and Mersini. Despite its small size, the island features 17 incredible beaches!
